FEMEN is a Ukrainian protest group based in Kiev, founded in 2008. The organisation became internationally known for going topless to protest against sex tourists, sexism and other social ills.
Some of the goals of the organisation are: "To develop leadership, intellectual and moral qualities of the young women in Ukraine" and "To build up the image of Ukraine, the country with great opportunities for women".
As of late April 2010 the organisation is contemplating becoming a political party to run for seats in the next Ukrainian parliamentary election.
